Aaliyah Haughton would have celebrated her 35th birthday today if she was still with us. With the voice of an angel, one could only imagine where Aaliyah’s ascending career would be if she reached her 30s.Though a R&B songstress, Aaliyah contributed her vocals to some rather dope hip-hop tracks in her day.

Here’s a compilation of some of her efforts that still sound amazing some decades later. Rest in peace, Aaliyah.—Cris Jones
